I cannot mount the lilo boot diskette with:
mount /floppy (using the fstab entry to specify the auto option)
it replies "mount you must specify the filesystem type"

mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /floppy fails with
reply: "wrong fs type. bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0, or too many
mounted file systems"

mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /floppy fails with
reply: "wrong fs type. bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0, or too many
mounted file systems"

mount -t minix /dev/fd0 /floppy fails with
reply: "wrong fs type. bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0, or too many
mounted file systems"

but on a mount /floppy cmd when a msdos diskette is inserted it mounts
correctly!!
